After catching up with former Sheriff Candidate Gordon Martines, the Las Vegas Tribune has recently learned that he is planning on forming an anti-corruption non-profit organization for the betterment of our community, possibly with the name “ANTI-CORRUPTION COALITION OF NEVADA.”
Martines said, “As this community, which happens also to be my home, has repeatedly demonstrated in the past, it is an ongoing ‘target rich’ environment for lowlife criminals to prey, and ply their trade, on the unsuspecting law-abiding citizens of our community, I feel the need and calling to fight back, to inquire, gather information, corroborate information and evidence, vigorously expose and help seek legal justice against these lawbreakers, whoever and wherever they may be in this state.”
“As a 39-year law enforcement veteran who, for the last 36 years, has served this particular community loyally and faithfully as a law enforcement officer, I am going to continue to fight the good fight; but this time, it will now be on my terms, legally of course, without anyone or anything able to maliciously and unlawfully attempt to threaten, divert or influence my inquiries, determinations or conclusions.”
Martines further said, “ I have a pretty good insight now — especially after the unlawful way my former police co-workers treated and injured me — into the how and who, when it comes to what breeds corruption, especially in my beloved Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, which desperately needs a cleansing and an extended perpetual enema, to rid itself of its present criminal infestation and debauchery, especially in the police administrative executive staff.
“The police department is not the only target on my list, as local and state government leaders that have demonstrated their complete indifference to their constituents, and have unlawfully committed fraud and other crimes, will be added to my list as well. So much corruption, of all sorts, and so little time.
“There is plenty of work to be done, and since I plan on applying for a non-profit status organization, I will need volunteers to help with this project. These volunteers and I will more than likely be subjected to ridicule and intimidation by “special individuals” that have entrenched themselves in committing fraud and avarice against this community for decades. The one thing that these lowlife bottom-feeding greedy criminals cannot stand or tolerate is ‘exposure.’
Exposure is the cure-all for all criminal activity and I have never been shy about telling the truth openly and continually. Justice, however, may not be immediately forthcoming because of the infiltration of the organized criminal element into our justice system, and especially in our particular community, which is rather prolific at it; but nevertheless, justice requires that such infiltration be properly dealt with, exposed, and investigated, followed by the prosecution of these exposed wrongful acts.”
Martines closed the interview by saying, “This project should be rather interesting in that the persons already interested in volunteering for this project have extensive law enforcement experience and backgrounds, as do I, and so this project could be viewed as sort of a hobby, to keep our hands in the mix, with the anticipated potential of some very startling exposures and results, all for the betterment of our community. I hope to change history for the better with this project.”
Martines had to add one more thing. He concluded by saying, “Remember, Information is power, especially when it is used strictly for the betterment of our community and our way of life. As an advocate of studying history of all sorts, I can attest to the fact that you are doomed to repeat history if you don’t recall and consider it first.”
